Kyle MacLachlan joins 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' as Skye's father

Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. first premiered, the show has been hinting at the identity of Skye’s parents.

Although we don’t know how he will fit into the context of the show, Skye’s father will definitely enter the mix in season 2. Sources confirm that Kyle MacLachlan has been cast in the role, though there’s no word yet on how long he’ll be sticking around.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m ET on ABC.

For those Arrow fans wondering how Laurel might start to make the transition from feisty district attorney to leather-wearing vigilante, well, we might have just figured it out.

EW has confirmed that J.R. Ramirez is joining Arrow‘s third season as Ted “Wildcat” Grant. Ted is an ex-boxer who will run a gym for underprivileged youth in Starling City.
